On Thursday, we celebrated my nephew’s 2nd birthday. And happily I found what turned out to be a great gift for him. Bronson loves airplanes, grandma tells me that when they go outside I will always listen for them, stop playing and look up and point. And rather ironically, Monette’s friend is a pilot (JB) who now introduced Bronson to actually getting to fly in the smaller planes. SO… when I saw this toy in the store, it was an immediate choice. I wasn’t sure if it was too small for him, but my sister said that he doesn’t like his bike (quite yet) and this actually did work out perfectly. Even better that he can turn on the propeller and it lights up. Reminded me of the times when my sister was little and used to race around on HER big wheel – and I literally mean race!! She’s still that same speed demon. LOL
We were lucky to get a little video of Bronson on his new plane and I love how quiet his little face is. We got a few smiles, but I know he likes it because he now gets mad if his big sister tries to ride it.
Bronson is now the ‘little man’ of their house and let’s just say, this poor man has a lot of work to deal with grandma, mom and big sister! All intense women. LOL
I enjoyed also playing with both him and Aspen (his sister) on the swing set, trampoline and also playing hide and go seek. It reminds me of when I used to do this with my own kids – and I miss it! Love hearing baby/children laughter and I love that Aspen calls me Aunt Run Run (since I was always doing that with her too).
Aren’t these kids just cute! I hope they have a good life and that they become happy kids like my own – even through all the struggles, I am thrilled at the adults I have created! In fact, having my daughter just turn 25 made me see how grown and beautiful she’s become, but now in about a month and a half my own ‘little man’ (lol) will be turning 30!! WOW – now that’s harder for me to swallow. Damn I’m old – and not as Run Run as I used to be. HEE HEE – but I’ll always be that crazy little aunt and crazy mom – and someday that crazy grandma.
